Ana sent a question through my Ask Me Anything link! If you’d like me to ask a question to answer in future blogs,click here:
Question: Hello, first of all I want to tell you that I am a big fan of yours, and that I am fascinated by the characters in your books. I have some questions for you: Do we follow the stories of Persefone and Hades? Or maybe Ares and Aphrodite too? a book of little stories about them would be great.
Answer: Hi Ana! Thank you for your kind comment! You have no idea how much it brightens my day to hear from a fan.
In general, the Persephone trilogy focuses more on Persephone and Hades myths, with other mythological characters taking supporting roles, while the Aphrodite trilogy focuses more on Aphrodite heavy myths with Persephone and Hades (among others) taking the supporting roles. In future books, Persephone and Aphrodite will take supporting roles as I explore the major myths for other goddesses, like Artemis.
So you will see more of both, likely even as point of view characters, but they won’t be the protagonists for any further stories. Just side characters.

When can we expect to see new books?
I like to complete an entire trilogy before sending them to my publisher. That way if something in my life pop up that prevents me from finishing, my readers aren’t left hanging, and I’m never tempted to cut quality in order to meet a deadline.
What that means for my readers, is there’s a fairly short wait between books within a trilogy and a long wait between sets of trilogies. I’m hoping the first book in the Artemis trilogy will be ready for publication by next winter.
I’m also working on another project called Knightfall (name may change) that’s my take on the magical girl genre of anime like Sailor Moon. If all goes well, it should be released in early 2021.
This year, I have some short stories slated for release in the Daughters of Zeus universe, so be on the look out for news on those.
